  9. 9. Executive Summary: Quarterly Focus TBRIT vendors will differentiate products with cross-platform operatingsystems and apps, pushing customer adoption and multi-device salesComputing companies are leveraging cross-platform operating systems and app stores toenable users to access content from any device. This strategy has positioned vendors forcross-selling opportunities and to meet emerging demand for apps and personal data on-demand. • HP is rolling out a webOS-based tablet and smartphones, and integrating the operating system into its traditional PCs in late 2011, to provide seamless wireless synchronization of key personal information across devices. • With iOS, Apple provides interoperability across the entire portfolio, enabling the vendor to leverage strength in one product line to drive sales of a weaker product line. • Vendors selling Google Android-based devices stand to benefit from platform standardization as well; for example, the integration of smartphones with Google TV provides end-users a number of options, such as using the phone as a remote for the television, and cross-device access to the Google Android app market and games. As users migrate to mobile devices, TBR believes a “human-centric” view will position vendors to drive revenue, unit and profit growth through 2011. • TBR believes the shift from a “device-centric” sales strategy to delivering a portfolio of unified offerings is significant to drive growth, as companies are able to bundle devices into larger, high- volume and high-margin deals. • We anticipate companies that are slow to adopt cross-device interoperability and access to app stores will face headwinds in the market, as these features emerge as competitive differentiators and key levers to accelerate revenue and margin growth.9 April 2011 TBR CBQ End-of-Quarter Benchmark Report | 4Q10 ©2011 Technology Business Research, Inc.

  13. 13. Segment View: PC TBREnterprise refresh remains the vehicle for growth, with portabilityand integrated solutions driving PC innovation for growthTrends & Outlook• TBR believes PC vendors will work to drive growth in tablets and PCs in the coming quarters, highlighting tablets as tools for consuming data, while touting the traditional compute capabilities of PCs, particularly in commercial markets.• TBR anticipates the enterprise PC refresh cycle will support unit and ASP growth in 2011.• TBR anticipates consumer PC demand will face headwinds in 2011, namely in China. We believe certain Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas, such as Beijing, are entering saturation, as post-recessionary refresh cycles of traditional PCs slow. We expect a shift in focus to new devices, such as tablets, and other emerging markets, such as India and China’s rural areas, for growth.Portfolio/GTM & RM Changes Key 4Q10 M&As, Alliance Changes & DealsCompany TBR Insights Company TBR Insights In January, Acer released new Aspire notebooks Acer and Ducati Motorcycle Company formed an and netbooks based on the AMD E-series alliance in 4Q10 under which Acer will provideAcer accelerated processing unit for improved Acer hardware, including high-performance mobile consumption of high-definition entertainment, devices for the development and testing of multitasking and power savings.
